This movie does keep moving and is pretty well acted.
It's not bad for an oldie.

Subject: Who's On First?
Confusingly plotted and edited, ÂHeld For Ransom rather amusingly plows through piles and piles of backstory (mainly through screaming headlines) about a top execÂs kidnapping. Soon, the cops and G-men are all on the case. Problem is, you have to really pay attention to who is what, whoÂs the bad guy and whoÂs the good guy. As a matter of fact, when an informant is gotten rid of at the beginning of the movie, you donÂt know whether heÂs a good guy or bad guy, and whether the people rubbing him out are too. Soon, a female G.I. is dispatched on the case and she proceeds to help figure out the case of where the exec is, the ransom money that has disappeared, while carefully avoiding the lusty stares of some police flakey.. By the end, you sort of know whatÂs going on, and it all ends rather movie serialishly.
Key notes here, itÂs nice to have a female heroine for a movie like this.. Also, check out the classic crane scoop game in the hotel scene! Classic!
